help with my new installation of hopper with sling and 3 joe

I just had a hopper with sling and 3 joeys installed yesterday. I thought we would be able to record with DVR and watch live TV, do I need to get the super joeys to do this?

You have 3 total tuners on your Hopper, shared between all your boxes - you can record 3 separate programs at one time & the 4 major networks use 1 tuner for all 4 so there's a possibility you could record 6 actual programs. Joeys watching live TV also use a tuner so you will have tuner issues with your setup. A super Joey would add a couple of extra tuners but getting a Hopper 3 gives you 16+ tuners, much better choice. All depends on how many shows you need to record at one time & how many users are watching live TV - in your case with several Joeys, I would have gone for a Hopper 3 to avoid conflicts. Might see if they will swap out your Hopper for a Hopper 3.
